Great news that the restoration of Pontypridd’s famous lido at Ynysangharad Park is on track to be finished by this summer.
Rhondda Cynon Taf council says its contractors have made significant progress over the winter months on the £6.3m project, which plans to transform the historic lido into a state-of-the-art facility, albeit one that isn’t open all year round, is not at all environmentally-friendly and will no doubt cost an absolute fortune to run by a cash-strapped council.

It is of course fantastic news that a pool that should have been developed over 20 years ago is finally opening but with obesity rates continuing to rise in RCT and prices in sports centres rising by approx. 14% (as well as our council tax rises), is this new pool going to be sustainable? Time will tell I guess. We hope so!
Olympic legacy eh?
